July 4th, 2009

On July 4th, 2009, we spent the day on our boat. Our friend, Dan, joined us. Brian’s girlfriend, Brittany, also joined us. During the day, we docked at Pensacola Beach, behind july4th2009Flounders Restaurant. My foot was still bandaged from the accident in June. I was not able to get into the water. It made for a very hot day. At night, we relocated to Pensacola Bay. We anchored our boat in the bay to watch the fireworks. This was the first time watching the fireworks from Pensacola Bay. It was very peaceful. Here is a photograph of Susan and I while anchored in Pensacola Bay.

July 4th, 2008

On July 4th, 2008, we did something a little different. In previous years, we drove downtown to watch the fireworks. Since this was our first year with a boat, we decided to take the boat to the july4th2008beach to watch the fireworks.

Normally we go downtown and watch the fireworks over Pensacola Bay. This year, we took the boat to Pensacola Beach and watched the fireworks over Santa Rosa Sound. First, we went to Sand Island and threw the Frisbee for awhile. Our friends, Brandon and Dee joined us. Sand Island can only be accessed by boat. After the stop at Sand Island, we went to Pensacola Beach, behind Flounders Restaurant, and docked. We stayed the evening there until after the fireworks. We had a nice time. The fireworks on the bay are better, but not as easy to view from a boat. We were able to see the Pensacola Bay fireworks in the distance.

July 4th, 2007

For July 4, 2007, we watched the fireworks downtown. I was on call for work. Since I was on call for work, I decided to work a sidejuly4th2007 job at  a wharf, that was near the firework show. My mom, stepdad and our niece, Nicole, were able to join us to watch the fireworks. All of the family joined me at the wharf. Before the fireworks, the kids seemed to want to take a lot of silly photographs. Here is a photograph of Susan sitting on her niece’s lap. My mom and stepdad are in the background.

July 4th, 2005

Each year, the Sertoma Club puts on a fireworks display in Pensacola Bay. For July 4th, 2005, Susan’s sister (Lisa), her husband (Bob), and Nicole were able to join us. Susan’s brother and hisjuly4th2005 family were able to come down for the weekend. They had to leave the morning of the fourth. Steve had to work on the fifth. Unfortunately, I had to work the evening of the fourth. However, I was able to join the family until right before the fireworks show. The festivities were kicked off with a parade. After the parade we just hung out by the bay in anticipation of the fireworks show. Just before the start of the show I was dispatched to a crime scene and had to leave. Everyone had a nice time, and I could even see the fireworks from where I was working. Click on the photograph to view the entire gallery.

July 4th, 2004

Each year, the Sertoma Club puts on a fireworks display in Pensacola Bay.  For July 4th, 2004, july4th2004Susan’s Sister (Lisa) and her family (Bob, Nicole and Alyssa) joined us to watch the show.  Alyssa’s best friend Lauren came down as well. We started out watching a small parade and then just hung around for awhile enjoying the festivities. Once darkness fell, we setup in the middle of the street to watch the show.  Following the show we decided to not fight traffic and listenedto the radio and danced as the crowd thinned out a bit. Here is a photograph of everyone waiting for the parade. Click on the photograph to view the entire gallery.
